Artists asked to submit bike rack ideas

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The Metro Arts Commission is looking for artists to create a new series of bicycle rack designs.

The first artistic racks were installed in 2010, which include a microphone and also a corn and tomato bike rack at the Farmers' Market.

The arts commission is looking for new designs for up to 30 locations.  The first 10 will be installed next year.

Metro Arts encourages all professional artists within 250 miles of Nashville to submit their designs.

"We have made great progress in making our city more livable and more active, and the bike rack project helps on both counts," Mayor Karl Dean said. "I am pleased to see this special public art program expand. As it grows, we improve livability in our community and encourage more recreational cycling in Nashville's neighborhoods."
